My Vehicle: I have a nice coat of veil on my headlights, a dark green car, and a laser shield on the front plate. The only chrome is a small toyota emblem that I also veiled.
What Happened: I was traveling down a long hill, at I would estimate ~70 in a 55. With the local cops, and they DEFINATELY would have pulled me over at that speed. All of the sudden I pick up laser from the front. I am about ~1100-1200 ft away from the source. I look around and cant find the cop anywhere in front of me. It turns out he was about 300ft off of highway I was traveling on in a field. I would say about 20% off axis when shooting at me.
I immediately hit my breaks (as the light ahead turns Red anyway). My initial thought is that it is another F-ing Nissan Murano (I hate those things) with their adaptive cruize control garbage. The cop was sitting on the road off the light that had just turned red.
I continue slowing down, now I am at 55 and I get hit again. This time from about 900ft. He then continues shooting me as I slow down to the light. At one point I was only going about 45 up to the light and he was still targeting me! I didn't get pulled over.
I thought it was very unusual that he targeted me for so long. I usually get hit, and they move on the next target. Especially since I was obviously stopping, going 10 under, and he just decided to keep on shooting. There was another motorcycle traveling fast in the lane to my right and the cop didn't seem to want to target him at all.
Does this seem strange to anyone else? It seemed like maybe he didn't get a reading at first, and grew suspecious of my vehicle so he kept shooting me? You guys are the best! I appreciate your input, this one got me interested...
